kathleen sebelius being grilled by congress. are you empathetic or -- what are your emotions? >> i did have some sympathetic pains. a person who has been in that chair. it is a demanding place for anyone to be in front of the energy and commerce oversight committee for three hours under oath is a delicate and difficult thing, but it is the process. and so i recognize that. lou: does it ease the pain and it when you hear an outrageously, i think, comparisons to the rollout of the medicare part b program that you headed that to the absolute disaster that is obamacare? >> the difference was we fix the system, and it turned that to be something that people both enjoy, i appreciate, and value. the jury is still very much doubt on how this will resolve itself. they are correct to say that there were problems in the early days. we expected that there would be, but we went straight forward and said we will find them, fix them, make the system work, and we did. we will find out in the next few weeks whether the obama administration succeeds at the same thing. we will know in march with are not -- ho
services officials are there. days later kathleen sebelius says we're right on track to rolling out flawlessly october 1. are we to assume there was such a culture of intimidation or no drama within the white house that no one has had the courage or the responsibility enough to prime the president and say i just saw a presentation. this fall is going to be scary on the rollout? >> what is curious about that is kathleen sebelius was in the meeting. she was there. marilyn tavenner who runs c.m.s., they were there. they heard. one of the things mackenzie said was if your website is not working, the call centers can't get the stuff into the system. we found that out the hard way. they also said there is no single person in charge. this is a giant bureaucracy. you need a project manager. but the federal government said we can handle it. they couldn't. meanwhile it gets even worse. according to -- so that was that. they knew. they knew going back. how many times do we hear the president and his surrogates say if you like your plan, you can keep it? they have known for years that tens of m
you have to secretary of health and human services kathleen sebelius on the hill. the woman who's in charge of the medicare/medicaid agencies. they're accepting responsibility but the problems just -- just doesn't steam go away. not only not go away it seems to get bigger. >> you can say this week that john kerry and -- to some degree but kathleen sebelius, secretary of health and human services, took one for the team. in full disclosure, i manage kathleen sebelius' father campaign, winning campaign for governor of ohio 43 years ago and i've known her so i don't pretend to -- total objectivity. but, i mean, it was refreshing to hear somebody stand up and say "i'm accountable, i'm responsible." i mean, that's a song you don't hear very often in washington "call me responsible." but you're right, the problems continue. they're compounded and -- by the fact than the president's statement that nobody would have to give up his or her existing insurance, that has been totally contradicted. he was wrong. he was misleading. and that's a time when you need the president to be the most cr

barely budging, but it's at $17 a share. we've got kathleen sebelius. she said this week that obamacare enrollment numbers were not available yet. however, internal notes from the obama administration meeting revealed these numbers. look at this. a total of 6 people signed up on the first day of obamacare. that would be six. the second day, 248. still in obamacare, is this. the top hospitals in the country opting out of obamacare. they don't accept it. what's going on with that, liz? >> what's going on is that essentially the insurers have to have a certain set of insurance plans that are likely pricier and so, they have to get costs somewhere reduced so they're squeezing hospitals and they're squeezing doctors, a lot of doctors and hospitals are saying, you know what? we may not accept these insurers in our own system and you're seeing this happen in california and big states like ohio. stuart: the report i read says 11 of the top 18 hospitals in the country are shunning obamacare, they don't want anything to do with it. it occurs to me that that would set up a dual system, a two-tier
obama himself to health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius has apologised for the website's problems and vowed to fix it. we are hearing conflicting reports about what went wrong with the roll out. cgi, the contractor developing the site may have warned the obama administration that it would not be ready tro go live on october 1st. we know the administration says it needs until the end of november to fix the technical glitches. that's two months after it launched. to comment the penalty for not enrolling under the new law is effectively waved for six weeks. the new deadline will be march 31st. if you are one of the estimated 15 million americans who buy your own insurance, you are not employed through an employer or insured through an employer, you have to sign up for coverage by the deadline or face a penalty. you can do that through your insurer or go to the government changes, assuming healthcare.gov works one day. >> 8.5 million of 15 million could qualify for a subsidy. the affordable part of the affordable care act may be a misnomer for 6.5 millions that didn't quali

though kathleen sebelius could not do it in 30 months it begs question where they had todd park hiding for the last 30 months, i know that lady on obamacare web site went missing for a period of time. if he is the smartest kid in the class, where has he think about for the last 30 months? they will be security issues. as i said yesterday, best thing kathleen sebeliu has going for her right now is fact that web site does not work, because once it works, you can get on, and figure out your coverage is worse and your prudentialiums arpremiums arehigher there willr mutiny. lou: the idea that this is just a web site problem. but not a problem with the model, and misalignment of incentives and a misreading of the marketplace. there have to be incentives as well as mandates to make it work it is possible that speaker boehner said it correctly. this is looking a little bit like ruination for obamacare itself. >> your reaction? >> there are voices that were barn warning, we were called arsonist and terrorists. but reality is, we begged this administration to postpone obamacare because it was no
